FreeBMD is only showing this birth in Wiltshire:

I'm not seeing a marriage for Adam Smith to any Phoebe?


Is this Phoebe?

Thank you all, I will look into those,  Think Nelson may have died in 1976 in Wiltshire.  Hubby has a fairly strong match at 141 cMS and these are in their tree plus another matches tree which is not as strong,  Both only have basic details as I put.

Thank you,  Sue

There’s a possible Nelson Smith indexed in Minstead, Hants in 1939 with DOB 16 June 1925 & likely mother Phoebe Smith.

Possibly a traveller family?
